For February 2007
This current chart is a talisman of Mars in Capricorn. The very fiery energy of Mars is outwardly directed the cardinal sign Aries, inwardly directed in the fixed sign Scorpio both of which he rules. In the very practical and hardworking sign Capricorn, the exaltation of Mars, all of that heat and energy is harnessed and put to work.
Forma Martis secundum opinionem Mercurii est forma hominis nudi, in pedibus erecti et dextra eius ante se virginem formosam in pedibus stantem tenentis, que est forma Veneris; et eius capilla retro aptati; et Mars ponens eius dextrum super suum collum et super eius pectus sinistram extenendo; et cum eius vultu aspicientis se et intuentis. Et hic sapiens dicit quod hec figura magnas potencias habet et opera magna valde; et de ea Deo dante erimus in posterum locuti. Et hec est eius forma.
The form of Mars according to the opinion of Mercury [Hermes Trismegistus] is the form of a nude man standing erect on his feet and before him on the right is a beautiful maiden standing on her feet, which is the form of Venus; and her hair is fastened in the back; and Mars is placing his right hand over her neck and his left hand is stretched out above her breast and they are looking at each other. The wise say that this figure has great power and strongly [accomplishes] great works and only God can speak of what comes after. And this is its form.
Picatrix, Bk. II, ch. 10.
The chart above shows the election at 5:07 am EST, February 23, 2007 in Cleveland Park, a neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Mars is very well dignified by exaltation. He is rising. It is the planetary hour of Mars. The Moon makes an applying trine to Mars and is herself exalted.
